Just five square miles in size, “the Point,” as locals call it, is a peninsula attached to the Canadian mainland on the Salish Sea with spectacular views of the San Juan and Gulf Islands. Surrounded on three sides by water, Point Roberts is rimmed with beaches and offers miles of hiking, biking, horseback riding trails, a marina, an 18-hole golf course, a variety of dining and shopping choices, and four county parks.
The Point’s conveniently located just 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver, British Columbia and ten minutes from the ferry to Vancouver Island/Victoria and Nanaimo.

I am writing to urge immediate action to provide relief to residents of my state who are uniquely impacted by the ongoing restrictions on non–essential travel through land and ferry crossings by Canadians into the United States. Additionally, clarity from your administration is badly needed to understand the circumstances and conditions necessary to permit entry into the United States via these crossings
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 5, 2021
The US Department of Transportation border crossing statistics at the Point Roberts border crossing paint a stark reality of the economic devastation that has plagued the community since the border closures at the onset of the pandemic – economic devastation that is getting little, if any attention from the US Government.
IN THE NEWS
Senator Murray: “I’m here on the Senate floor today to make sure that President Biden and his administration understand me. At the very least, we need an emergency exemption from these restrictions for the Point Roberts community—and that exemption is long overdue.”
